What are Open Badges?

Open Badges are standard, verifiable, portable, and shareable digital micro-credentials with embedded information about the skills and achievements of their recipients. They have been developed to make visible and recognise what we learn and achieve through work, school, hobbies, volunteering, and various other activities in our lives. They can be used to validate competencies and achievements, to motivate employees, volunteers, and students, to set up learning pathways, and to monitor individual or organisational development goals.

Open Badge Factory provides versatile tools for creating and implementing an efficient and sustainable Open Badge strategy. Recognise and reward your learners with high-quality open badges that bring them significant career value. Open Badge Factory is suitable for all kinds of organisations, such as schools, vocational organisations, associations, and companies. Work alone or work with others; with Open Badge Factory’s unique collaborative features, you can build meaningful networks and badge ecosystems.
